The Law Library in Duluth revealed some changes on Tuesday.

The library moved from the fifth floor of the Duluth courthouse to the more accessible first floor. It was also renamed after former longtime St. Louis County Attorney Alan Mitchell.

"It's to me more than just the law library," Mitchell said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday. "It's probably more important to me because it's showing a respect from the people I worked with all those years, and understanding the efforts that were made on behalf of the people of St. Louis County."

The St. Louis County Law Library system is a free resource for everyone from attorneys, to residents who are involved in court cases, to educate themselves on legal principles. The Duluth branch is staffed with an attorney Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
